Jason Dundas found an irresistible holiday destination on the south coast of New South Wales. View this amazing home in the gallery below, or read more about it down the page.
Cuttagee is five minutes from Berry and overlooks the countryside to the Berry Mountains. The owner has a penchant for all things 1960s, and there are quirky pieces blended with traditional country elements.
The house has five beautifully decorated bedrooms. The king room and one of the queen rooms have ensuite facilities. The others share a spacious main bathroom.
The open-plan living area is all about relaxing, and the fully-equipped kitchen just might be better than the one you have at home! A large fireplace keeps the house snug in cool months.
A large and furnished entertaining deck overlooks the pool which is solar heated between October and April. You can cook up a storm on the gas barbecue.
The outdoors and indoors can be combined simply by opening a roll-up door!
For those who can't live without electronic entertainment, there is a television and DVD player in the main bedroom, one of the guest rooms and in the den.
As you probably won't want to leave Cuttagee, almost anything you desire can be brought to you.
If you fancy a night at the movies, the people from Outdoor Movies Australia will arrive with a screen, speakers and set up your own private bush cinema! If it's on DVD, you can watch whatever takes your fancy.
Zen Healing Therapies will help you de-stress, relax and get the most out of your holiday. They specialise in a Japanese form of yoga called oki-do, and laughter is part of the therapy. It's said to make a physiological change in your body and that's why laughter is the best medicine! They also use reiki techniques which reduce stress and promote healing.
Pamper Me Mobile Massage owner Wendy Jesson has a holistic approach to wellness and beauty. She believes if you feel good you look good!
All of her products are based on natural ingredients and pure essential oils, perfect for restoring natural lustre to the skin. Jason indulged in a one-hour Swedish massage and he totally understands why they call themselves 'Pamper Me'.
